ARTIST STATEMENT: Tracing spatial and temporal relationships in mediated environments, often in real time, and often in collaboration. Mappings of these relationships include a) the application of traditional painting techniques to conceptual landscapes, b) creating visual artifacts during a defined durational experience or activity, and c) through ephemeral, digital painting as performance, including membership in Patricia Nicholson’s interdisciplinary improvisational movement/music/painting group ‘Resurrection Revolution (R&R). Additional collaborative projects include long-term working relationships with organizations including Arts for Art/Vision Festival, the Belladonna* writers collaborative, and the defunct NYSoundCircuit.
